The "CASE"ing of Stacy- Part II

Hi Blog Friends!

Just a quick post here today.
The title of this blog post makes me chuckle! It SOUNDS LIKE a MYSTERY! No mystery here! Just pure FUN!
After I did my last "CASE"ing, I couldn't help but do another one! Stacy has SO MANY GORGEOUS CARDS!!!!!!! As before, you can see them all here:
Here is the card I "CASED" this time!

Now, I should tell you, again I didn't have the lovely stamp Stacy had BUT, I made do with what I  had! AND I should tell you when I am working on a card, I have to turn my computer off & place it elsewhere. I can't easily refer back to the card I'm CASING! There just isn't enough room on my desk for both! (I don't have a Craft room like many & if you could see my desk!!!!) I go by memory so, there ARE some differences in our cards!

Here is my card:


Here are some more photos:
(A close-up of the Spotlighting where I used Copic Markers, the embossing, the ribbon & one little black gem; I did add a little- bitty butterfly by SU- Butterfly Embosslits on the fence post!) )

Here is my card at an angle:
(You'll notice it opens a little different from Stacy's card too.)

Here is the inside:
(I embossed the inside too!)

Here is the BACK:
(I created an Easel to hold the card up. You can also see where I stamped the back & signed it.)

Here is the other side of the back:
(I had a piece of paper about 5 1/2" x 4 3/4". Scored it on the long side at 1". Then from that angle I cut down leaving about 2 1/4" on the other long side from the beginning of my angle. I used a 1 3/4" SU- Circle punch on the bottom & then attached this to the card. Using a ruler, draw a straight line from the base of the fold angling up across the punch. Once you've attached this to the front of your card, you will see if you need to cut more off using the ruler to help your card stand; just keep angling up.)

HOPE you enjoyed Part II of  "The 'CASE'ing of Stacy!"
